David is a gifted massage therapist and healer. I always feel cleansed when David works on me, like my energy and chakras are realigned. He hits every spot with thoughtful and connected touch. His bodywork is both powerful and deeply relaxing. I’ve been going to him for two years now and I highly recommend him.

David is my favorite massage therapist. Stressed out? David will bring your body back to life. He’s the only man I want to see when I need a total recharge. His positive energy and laser focus always amaze me. I don’t know what I’d do without him.

David is an exceptional massage therapist healer. I felt his energy for hours after I left his space. I felt blessed for having been in his studio and made that connection. It was just what I needed for this pandemic depression. Thank you David! You’re the best!

I had a massage with David yesterday. It was one of the best experiences I’ve had in a long time. Treat yourself to this guy, especially now when we all could use a little TLC.

His massage felt like it melted the stress in my bones and I left completely invigorated, ready to face the world again.

His pressure was perfect. He’s strong when he needs to be and gentle where he has to be. His massage is highly intuitive. He kept his head close to my body as he worked on me. It was almost as if he was “listening” to my muscles. Unlike other guys, he really gets in there. It was the most thorough massage I’ve ever had.

His massage space is thoughtfully laid out, as was everything about his session, from the warm table and hot towels to his cool music and super strong shower.

The man’s got talent and he does it right! I’ll be back!

David takes the art of massage to the next level. His massage engages your whole body, mind and soul, and he puts his into it too. He’s an artisan masseur if there ever was one. He blends every kind of massage into one. Just perfect!

David is the real deal through and through. From his training to his technique, there’s nobody else like him. I work out a lot and need a massage that’s more than just a feel-good rub... this is it. Try him for the best massage you’ve had in years, maybe ever.

I’ve been a massage therapist for 20 years and very picky about being worked on myself. David came highly recommended, so I went to him last week. I was impressed by every aspect of David’s massage and of the therapist himself.

His moves were smooth, clean and confident, his technique is seasoned and his touch was nuanced and fully connected.

He didn’t speak at all during the session but spoke volumes with his hands and touch. His pressure was always spot-on. His hands knew where to be at all times. He found spots on my body that needed work - spots that even I didn’t know about. Everything he did felt exactly right. He gave me a massage that I didn’t know I needed so badly, one that surpassed my every expectation, which was high given my friend’s recommendation. I was not only impressed, but deeply grateful to him for the ineffable and inexpressible, spiritual and giving aspects of his bodywork. He’s the real thing and a great bodyworker. He’s the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing, something I don’t say lightly. I highly recommend him to any man looking for a truly and uniquely gifted master masseur.

The massage was beyond amazing. Thank you for the incredible experience. Looking forward to next time.

David is the grand master of massage. His massage is like a religious experience! He’s an extremely sweet man who makes you feel like you’re the only other person on the planet when he works on you. I’ve sent all my friends to him and they always rave about him. Do yourself a favor and book a massage with David. He’s a godsend!

If you’re really into massage like me, then you’ve got to experience David’s. It’s extraordinary. First of all, his energy is centered and focused. He’s quiet but intense. He stays fully connected through every move, which I find rare. I was impressed by the level of connection he maintained throughout the massage, like he was reading not only my body but my mind as well. He seemed to know what to do and where to be at all the right times and he was always at the exact right pressure throughout too. I never needed to tell him a thing. I just laid on his table and enjoyed it all. The entire experience was not only therapeutic and completely relaxing, it was a fully holistic one as well. In addition, he has a great set-up in a nice new apt building that was easy to find. David is a true massage lover’s masseur, a must-see.

Thanks for the great massage, David! You’re incredible! My body has felt great since I left your studio. You managed to get rid of my every knot. I can’t thank you enough. I’ll be back again soon!

Evryting was done right. Book David now. You r body will be glad you did.

All around an awesome deep tissue massage from the perfect masseur in a cool space. I got my first massage from David today and the details are fuzzy cuz I tuned out shortly after I got on his table and quickly fell into a blissful state of heaven. Cloud 9 all the way. Highly recommended if you want a genuine massage!

I have a very active lifestyle and do CrossFit on a regular basis and needed a deep tissue massage. Not only was the experience relaxing but I felt a million times better after each session. He made sure I was always comfortable and the pressure was perfect. Highly recommended!
